The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

To view posts in your time zone, click the User Control Panel at the top left side of the page.
Click Board Preferences > Edit Global Settings.
Choose the time zone for your area from the drop down menu.
Tick the button next to Yes if Summer time/Daylight Savings Time is in effect in your area.
Click "Submit" when you are done.

As for the Personal Challenges, they have been ending earlier than the Weekly Challenges for some time now.
You must complete them by 7:00 or 8:00 PM Pacific Time on Tuesday night.



I just checked where you directed me to check and it already was for EST as UTC-5, and I haven't noted it on previous posts. So that still doesn't answer why it was saying 3am plus...I had changed that setting a while ago. But, to be honest, I was on my laptop and perhaps that needs to be set as well? At any rate, thanks for your response Jada!

Why does the timer on the personal challenges run out prior to the daily challenge? I was lacking 25 cards (which I probably would not have gotten anyhow) for that TGI badge and all the sudden it tells me my time ran out? I don't understand why it's different from the daily challenge timer, and there is 4 hours left of those challenges?

Matter of opinion I guess. I think it sounds like fun, and challenging.

It gets tiresome moving cards back into place and getting scores much higher than they should be. My favorite game has become a nightmare.

Have you tried adjusting your touch pad to not be so sensitive?

When you say "undo" are you meaning that after you place cards on a column, they Undo like using the undo button and return to where they were? Are Is your browsers Zoom set at 100% ?

It's random..

However, if you are working on something that needs some good scratches, keep hitting new game until you have a set up that both looks good to you, and has a scratch card right at the bottom. Scratch it, and if it isn't as high as you want, start THAT SAME game over and over and keep scratching until you get a high one. At least then you start out with a high bonus score.
If that makes sense

You're welcome. I see you found your badge. If you look on the Challenge tab in Payday Free Cell, you will see your badge under the Mix & Match heading. It will be the second one with the word "Retiring" on it.
As for the Rainy Day Badge, it is a Legendary Badge and you either purchased it or it was a gift from someone.
Good Luck with your Badge.
